Jenny and Lucy get enthusiastic about Albert and Allegra, grouchy about Hitch and Sarah (it takes a really bad movie to neutralize Will Smith’s charm), and outraged over the exploitation of romcom cliches. Lord, it wasn’t good.
Lucy says: 3 Pops ~ I adored Albert and Allegra, wanted to hold Hitch and Sara under the waters of the Hudson until they stopped being afraid to love. A wonderful secondary romance smothered by a terrible primary romance. Although I still adore Will Smith.
Lucy’s rating breakdown: Structure: 2, Comedy: 4, Romance: 3
Jenny says: 3 Pops ~ Albert and Allegra rule, everything else drools. Just fast forward until you see Kevin James. Kevin James with Will Smith, Kevin James with Amber Valleta, Kevin James dancing in the street.
Jenny’s rating breakdown: Structure: 2, Comedy: 4, Romance: 3 (an average of the 1 for Hitch and Sarah and the 5 for Albert and Allegra)
